this economic plan for this financially struggling city which focuses on tax cuts in lieu of government stimulus programs. we know now because a federal judge said because it is a city that's eligible to file nor chapter 9. so is this part of the trip clearly a political one to wrangle more votes towards the republican party. but is rand paul a true economic crusader like detroit needs? >> he's not the crusader that detroit needs right now. if you cut away from a lot of the flash, what you're looking at here is a good old trickle down economics. the idea is if you cut taxes for those at the top of the scale, you're going to generate enough economic activity to provide employment opportunities for everybody else. that has not worked on a national scale, and it's going to be particularly i think fool hearted in a place like detroit which actually needs support. not permanent, not forever, but to just get back on its feet. i think that's quite clear if you look at what the city's been going through. >> jared bernstein former chief economist for vice president joe biden. thank you, sir. >> thank you
